Is eye makeup an absolute must every time you step out? Then you are definitely among those who believe that doing up only the eyes can work wonders in sprucing up one's overall look, even if you have just eyeliners to work with. As much as some may dread using eyeliners, if you have mastered drawing a steady line with it, then you will know that it can actually work as a magic wand to highlight your eyes. Gone are the days when eyeliners were used only to make the lashes seem thicker or give the eyes a little more definition. With so many eyeliner trends in effect, you can make a style statement every other day.
There are all sorts of eyeliners available in the stores today that you can use in different ways to add a dramatic effect to your eyes. Other than pencils, you can try gels, powders, liquids and stickers, while also opting for the desired effect - as thick as a crayon, as thin as a thread, smudgy, glittery, smokey, colour pop, you name it!
Here are some stylish ways you can wear eyeliner -
1. Cat eyes
This is a classic style that can never go out of fashion. Rather than simply drawing out a line, cat eyeliner adds more definition to the eyes by working up the corners and giving it a chic finish.
2. Winged tip
Winged tip is probably the most popular eyeliner trend currently. It takes a little time to master, but once you do, you are sure to be hooked to it. It differs from cat eyes for its sharp edges.
3. Double decker or double winged
Double decker or double winged eyeliners are for those who like to be edgy. Kareena Kapoor seems to love this style.
4. Inverted eyeliner
As the name suggests, you need to draw the eyeliner at the lower lids of your eyes.
5. Glittery eyes
Want to add some oomph to your party look? Wear glittery eyes and stand out.
6. Coloured eyeliner
This is the season for colour pop. Play around with bright coloured eyeliners and notch up your everyday style.
7. Kitten eyes
A subtler version of the cat eye, kitten eyeliner is perfect for days when you want to keep it simple.
8. Dot eyeliner
A hot trend on the runaway, dot eyeliners can instantly add an avant garde effect to your look. You could go for the dotted underline or singular dot.
9. Outer V-eyeliner
Another popular trend on the runway, wear the V-eyeliner to highlight your eyes while keeping rest of your look simple.
Try these eyeliner styles and let your eyes do all the talking.
